Dreams are stories and images that our minds create while we sleep. A traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. Get involved in this ancient ritualistic process to catch and document varying thoughts while you sleep. This is something that the whole family can enjoy.

Summer officially starts June 21st!!!  This is the hottest season, where the daylight hours are the longest and the nighttime hours are the shortest.  Living in Florida, we typically play outside all year round but for others it is time to shed those winter clothes and head outside!  Let’s celebrate the season by creating summer inspired activities.
